About the New Kensington Community Development Corporation (NKCDC)
NKCDC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to revitalizing the East Kensington, Fishtown, and Port Richmond neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Their mission is to strengthen the physical, social, economic fabric of the community by being a catalyst for sustainable development and community building.
About the East Kensignton Neighborhood Assoication (EKNA)
The East Kensington Neighbors Association was founded in 2004 with help from the community organizing arm of the NKCDC. EKNA’s mission is to organize the voices, concerns, and actions of E.K. residents. Geographically, East Kensington is bounded by Norris Street to the south, Frankford and Trenton Ave. to the east, Lehigh Ave. to the north, and Front Street/Kensington Ave. to the west.
EKNA has organized into committees where dedicated individuals can pursue the issues they are most passionate about—whether zoning, trees, law enforcement, trash, or celebrating the incredible artists that surround us.
There are serious things to address, but we have plenty of fun, too. The Trenton Avenue Arts Festival is how we expose new people to the area and raise money for local projects while having a great time. The overwhelming growth and success of past festivals speaks to the growing energy within EKNA and the neighborhood itself.
